Can the Celtics Stop Joel Embiid Tonight?
As Rick Kamla explains in the video, the big question for the Boston Celtics tonight is whether or not they can slow down the NBA MVP Joel Embiid. The Philadelphia 76ers star center has scored at least 30 points in three straight games in this series and his offensive presence is a large reason why the Sixers won Games 4 and 5. Of course, the Celtics also have to worry about James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, or Tobias Harris having big games even if they limit Embiid's scoring. Can Jayson Tatum, Al Horford, and Jaylen Brown lead the Celtics to a Game 6 win and send the series back to Boston all tied up?
